Union Army soldiers and mounted soldiers were typically issued these sidearm revolvers designed for the time. They relied heavily on these revolvers for short range and close quarters combat. The revolver was unique and highly sought-after because it had the ability to fire several rounds per minute before having to reload. Revolvers were typically issued as the sidearm of choice to officers and mounted soldiers. However some were purchased privately or found scattered on the battlefield by infantrymen.
Distinguished by its octagon barrel and lever style loader, the Navy Model 1851 Revolver helped to begin both the expansion of the West and the Civil War.

The British government licensed the manufacturing rights and produced what is commonly known as the London Model.
